This guideline offers recommendations on the diagnostic tests, treatment regimens and health promotion principles needed for the effective management of TV, covering, the management of the initial presentation, as well as how to prevent transmission and future infection.
It is aimed primarily at people aged 16 years or older (see specific guidelines for those under 16) presenting to health care professionals, working in departments offering specialist care in sexually transmitted infection (STI) management within the United Kingdom. However, the principles of the recommendations should be adopted across all levels (non specialist services may need to develop, where appropriate, local care pathways).
